Award-winning author from the Upper East Region, Sandra Sore, is challenging young people who are interested in writing to be persistent and give themselves permission to explore.

Ms. Sore further advised young aspiring writers to realize that writing is a big field, and as such, they must find niches. Being able to string words together, she insisted, is not enough to be considered a good writer.

She made these comments when she spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Daybreak Upper East Show today, April 30, 2024.

“Well, the least I can say is give yourselves permission to explore. You should be able to identify your niche. The fact that you are good with words and can write well doesn’t mean you will do well in every genre of writing.”

Ms. Sore also encouraged young writers to be authentic in their stories; otherwise, they would be found out as frauds.

“So, first you have to find what you do easily and build yourself in that line, and also be very authentic in your writing. People love authenticity, and if you fake it, you would soon be found out. All you have to do is believe that you are good enough, take the first step to putting yourself out there. If it doesn’t work, you learn from the mistakes, and then you try again. I mean, this is not the first time I’m taking part in a writing contest.”

It would be recalled that Sandra Mbamah Sore placed second in the senior category of the AKAYA Empowered Inkwell writing contest. Her achievement came with a cash prize of three thousand cedis.

Ms. Sore’s non-fiction titled “Free My Soul,” which drew inspiration from “the ups and downs of being an only female among five children and a female in the northern Ghanaian setting,” won her the prestigious award.

AKAYA Foundation is a UK and Ghana registered non-profit organization focusing on the personal and professional development of the next generation of African female leaders by building their confidence, centering their voices, and ensuring they reach their full potential.

It is an organization dedicated to ensuring that all African girls and young women have the confidence to take ownership of their journeys in good knowledge and good health, in order to thrive in their own world and that of the next generations.
